Description Igor Zubkov 2009-08-16 03:06:49 MSD
Race condition in PulseAudio 0.9.9, 0.9.10, and 0.9.14 allows local users to gain privileges via vectors involving creation of a hard link, related to the application setting LD_BIND_NOW to 1, and then calling execv on the target of the /proc/self/exe symlink.

0.9.10 в бранче 4.1, другие бранчи и Сизиф не подвержены.
Comment 2 Sergey Bolshakov 2009-08-16 14:19:42 MSD
описанный сценарий возможен, если на pulseaudio установить suid bit,
в пакете его там нет.
